  • help to facilitate collaboration and active social learning through provision of gathering spaces and informal learning spaces
  • offer a consolidated range of relevant student support services
  • offer retail and food experiences and meeting support spaces
  • provide staff office accommodation (and provide opportunities for consolidation)
  • provide a translucent and welcoming building with community interface opportunities
  • exemplify innovative design with a focus on ecologically sustainable development initiatives.
